I bought a spaghetti squash and I decided to make just half of it today. I made a savory squash recipe to go with a nice steak. The worst part of it was the fight with the squash. I had to cut it in half. Really, if you have a strong guy next to you just give him the knife to deal with the squash. Ohhh, I was exhausted. After that it was piece of cake. Tomorrow I will use the other half, maybe I will make it with some spaghetti sauce and meatballs.
1/2 medium spaghetti squash
5-6 small tomatoes, quartered
2 tablespoons fresh chopped basil
1 small clove garlic, crushed
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
Salt to taste
Shredded Parmesan cheese
Italian dressing (optional)
Carefully cut the squash in half.
Scoop out the seeds and stringy stuff.
Microwave cut side up on high for about 8-10 minutes. Once the flesh can easily be poked with a fork it’s done.
Let it cool.
Scoop squash out of the peel with a fork into a strainer.
Toss in a large bowl with the tomato, basil, garlic, salt and pepper.
Taste and adjust seasoning.
Serve with grated parmesan cheese or add a little italian dressing.
